California: Anti-Gun Bills Still with Governor Brown

California: Anti-Gun Bills Still with Governor Brown

Governor Brown has until Sunday, October 11, to decide to VETO or sign four anti-gun bills.  There is still plenty of time for law-abiding gun owners, sportsmen, and Second Amendment supporters to contact Governor Brown urging him to VETO the following bills.

Please let Governor Brown know that these bills would do nothing to address crime and that they would only impact law-abiding gun owners.

 

Listed below are some arguments against each of these bills: 

Assembly Bill 96 was introduced with the intent of curbing poaching and helping to end the illegal ivory trade.  However, AB 96 would not accomplish its stated objective.  This bill would harm firearm owners, sportsmen, hunters, recreational shooters and gun collectors who have legally purchased firearms (knives, jewelry, antiques and other items) with ivory features -- not poachers or those who trade in illegal ivory.   If implemented, AB 96 would make it a crime to sell property that was acquired legally and in good faith, while doing nothing to stop poaching or the illegal ivory trade.

Assembly Bill 1134 would increase the red tape and costs associated with issuing CCW permits and make it more difficult for law-abiding citizens to apply for CCW permits, while doing nothing to reduce crime.

Senate Bill 707 would lead to the unjust prosecution of otherwise law-abiding firearm owners.  It is a solution in search of a problem, as we are not aware of any situation in California or the rest of the country in which a CCW holder committed an act of violence while on school property.  SB 707 is yet another misguided bill that only impacts law-abiding CCW permit holders while doing nothing to reduce crime.

Senate Bill 347 would create a ten year prohibition on firearms possession for carrying or transporting ammunition. Existing law has mandated a ten year prohibition on the possession of firearms for anyone convicted of numerous misdemeanors involving violence or threats of violence.   If enacted into law, law-abiding parents who have been target shooting and inadvertently leave a box of ammunition in their trunk while dropping off or picking up their child from school or parking in a school parking lot would be prohibited from possessing firearms for ten years.  There is no basis for this kind of legislative overreach.

Don’t forget to forward this alert to your family, friends, and fellow gun-owners and sportsmen urging them to also contact Governor Brown and respectfully asking him to VETO the above bills.
